Four of our favorite picture book creators will be making their way from Brooklyn to Children's Book World for an afternoon of fun and enjoyment. Create your own fun with arts and crafts activities while you meet the fab four from Brooklyn.
CREEPY CARROTS - We are ridiculously excited to have Peter Brown back again! Peter is the author and illustrator of some of our favorite books: The Curious Garden, Children Make Terrible Pets and Will You Be Me Friend?. This time around Peter will be showing us his latest book CREEPY CARROTS which is sure to become a family favorite (it is with our families!) "The Twilight Zone" comes to the carrot patch in this clever picture book parable about a rabbit who fears his favorite treats are out to get him.
BIG MEAN MIKE - Our staff squealed when they heard Michelle would be back again. And not just because we adore her (and her classic Library Lion) but her new book BIG MEAN MIKE has been entertaining everyone who picks it up! Mike is proud to be the biggest, toughest dog in the neighborhood, so when tiny, fuzzy bunnies start showing up in his big, mean car he sees them only as a threat to his reputation, no matter how adorable they are.
MOONSHOT - We have been hoping one day Brian Floca would visit our store and now the time has come. Brianis the author and illustrator of Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11, Lightship, and The Racecar Alphabet. He is the illustrator of the popular Poppy series, by Avi, and most recently, Marty McGuire Digs Worms!, by Kate Messner. Ballet for Martha is simply gorgeous and a staff favorite.
INFINITY AND ME - Kate Hosford is new to our store but not to our bookshelves. We've been BIG fans of Big Bouffant and Big Birthdayand were delighted when Kate's new book INFINITY AND ME arrived this summer. Uma can't help feeling small when she peers up at the night sky. She begins to wonder about infinity. Is infinity a number that grows forever? Is it an endless racetrack? Could infinity be in an ice cream cone? Uma soon finds that the ways to think about this big idea may just be...infinite.
